LEONARD COHEN, MICHAEL MAYER, TIGA + THE XX are just a selection of the music run through on this installment of the ABSTRACT SCIENCE podcast. At the time of recording, we’d just lost one of the true musical greats, LEONARD COHEN, an epic and poignant poet, author, singer and songwriter. The kind that comes along only once in a lifetime, and he’ll be missed. The title track from his final LP, last month’s You Want It Darker, leads things off as MISTER JOSHUA moves through a moody set of techy sounds highlighting ZOMBY, ROMAN FLUGEL + RICARDO VILLALOBOS‘ recent remix of PRINS THOMAS. Lightening the mood, the latest from BONOBO + THE XX also feature before a first hour closer from psych outfit VANISHING TWIN. HENRY SELF keeps with the tech-house vibe offering up selections from OCTAVE ONE, MATTHEW DEAR under his AUDION guise, KLAUS SCHULZE and an infectious turn from KOMPAKT’s MICHAEL MAYER on his collaboration with MISS KITTIN. [aired 10 November 2016 on WLUW 88.7fm chicago]
